The UK's second largest donor to charity

All donations from the Freemasons come from our own members, we do not collect from the general public. Did you know that at a national level, Freemasons are the second biggest donor to charity - we are only beaten by the National Lottery!



Large Donations for Big Projects

We also contribute to funds which are run at the County and National level whic means we can put forward the case for larger grants to these organisations. One example of this is the recent grant for £100,000 from the Freemasons's Grand Charity to Prior's Court, the Hermitage based autism charity. Read the full story
